First question, why autism? Well, I noticed that it’s not commonly known, let alone addressed in our society but that doesn’t mean it’s not important. I feel for the parents of the affected children as society usually shuns their babies because of ignorance. I have read endless stories of the struggles they endure especially when they enroll their children for school. Our society is quick to blame anything they do not quite understand on traditional misfortunes and pure bad luck. As a volunteer, one of the best advice I was given is that if I cannot help someone with the finance they need to solve their problem, I should either lead them to someone who can, or offer the best non-financial solution they can ever get! I will try and do the two in this short piece. After reading this, you should at least have an appreciation of autism.
